Here’s what a few have to say….
“A huge thank-you to you and the band for lifting the spirits and carrying the Christchurch event we held for of our Fonterra staff and suppliers who have all been affected by the earthquake. You read the audience from the start and set the perfect tone to the extent that everyone was disappointed when the barbeque came to an end. Finishing on “Anchor Me” was great, but the cherry on the top was how you managed to get the sun to replace the cloud and drizzle as you started playing!! We have had fantastic feedback from everyone there and my sincere thanks to you for the part you played in generating that. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again. Kind regards, Philippa” – Philippa Mandis – Fonterra – Project and Events Manager, Corporate Marketing 9 June 2011
“You guys really made the night – your performance and attitude in undesirable weather conditions are still talked about by friends and family. Thanks a million” – Andrew Sinton-White, 26 January 2011
“Just wanted to pass on a comment from our staff members from Saturday night who said that you guys were absolutely fantastic and they highly recommend you for other functions. As I said in my text I am sorry I didn’t get to meet or hear you but hopefully you will be at Addington again. Cheers, Deb” – Deb Keen, Functions and Events Co-ordinator, Addington Events Centre, 23 November 2010-
“Just wanted to write on behalf of Craigieburn Valley Ski Club to say thanks for the two gigs you have done for us and may there be many more. The quartet played at our pre-season fundraiser on June 12th and had everyone up dancing and wanting more with a great range of songs for all ages. I had a stream of people coming up to me during and since the event saying how great you are both instrumentally and vocally. It was on the strength of this that we asked you to come and play up at the skifield in the bar as a duo and want you back pronto! All the staff and every guest in the lodge couldnt resist coming up to the bar and loved you. The acoustic range of songs was brilliant – we just cant sing your praises enough and look forward to seeing you on 11 Sept, 2010.” – Dr Sue Luty, Associate Professor
“These guys were true professionals and did a fantastic job. They ticked all the boxes. I would have no hesitation recommending them for any corporate gig”. – Kristie McGregor, Foodstuffs, 22 March 2010
“I have had Acoustic Solution perform at a number of events that we have organised. They are a band that is very well received; they play a wide selection of up-to-date covers and perform these very well, their music selection certainly gets the crown onto the dance floor. Damien and the team are professional, time considerate, and are thorough in ensuring that their music selection matches the requirements of your event.” – Maree McEnaney, Events Co-ordinator – Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce
“Just really wanted to thank you for making our wedding exactly what we wanted, we certainly had the time of our lives and everyone that we have so far talked to is in agreement. I’ve never been to a wedding where so many people were up and dancing for the whole night, it was just awesome” – Todd Cassie
“You played a great selection of music that got everyone up dancing, from the oldies to the flower girls, and that was just what we were hoping for. We have raved about the band to friends and would recommend you to anyone planning a function.” – Mike and Amanda Healey
“Over the past year and half that I have worked with Acoustic Solution I have always found them to produce great music for any occasion, whether it be party music to get the crowd up dancing or classic tunes for after a dinner service. They always help to give people a reason to stay. They are always professional and understand that they are there for your business not you there for them. Great bunch of guys to deal with and I would happily recommend them.” Tom Cairns – Assistant Manager – Fox&Ferret Riccarton.
“The ChCh Garden City Trust would like to thank you and your group forthe rich musical contribution you made to the Cathedral event during the 2009 festival of flowers. We were proud to offer our audience such a varied and acomplished locally-based group of performers. We have received very positive feedback regarding the performances in the Cathedral” – Devi Benson, Festival Administrator
“Acoustic Solution were the perfect finale to a perfect day” – Deane and Louise Simmonds
“Acoustic Solution were the perfect compliment to our evening – the whole experience was professional and entertaining. The ability of the band to interpret the audience and cater their playlist to suit meant the tempo of the evening ramped up seamlessly. Thanks guys for your contribution to what was a great night for us and our guests” – Craig Mangos & Gaylene Thomas
“Have had lots of good comments about Acoustic Solution” – Parklands Tavern
“I would like to thank you again for providing the entertainment on the night, with such a wide range of ages it can sometimes be difficult to find a band that suits everyone. I must say I was quite shocked to see people up dancing so soon! Even to what was supposed to be the quiet acoustic set!! It just goes to show how popular you guys were. I have heard nothing but positive feedback from everbody who attended and I am still buzzing! It was a real hum-dinger of a night”. -Patrick.
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you, you guys rocked and we had every guest telling us how great you were and how great a time they had and I couldnt agree more. It was exactly what we wanted and completed a perfect day”. – Blair & Amy Robinson (14 October 2009)
“You Guys Rock . Excellent band . Really enjoyed you guys . Keep me updated with your gigs. Cheers, Bern” -Bernard Blanken (25 October 2009)
“We were extremely happy with Acoustic Solution and are keen to have them back. They were awesome. Please relay this information to them from us as well”. -Charlotte, No. 8 Wire Events, Timaru (9 December 2009)
“We just wanted to pass on our thanks to the Acoustic Solution guys who played at our wedding on 3rd March. Everyone enjoyed the band and were up dancing most of the night. As they had predicted, the wedding was running late, so thanks for having patience and going with the flow. We thoroughly recommend Acoustic Solution to any other couples or groups wanting a band who have great voices, engage the crowd and get everyone up dancing by their choice of songs”. -Olivia.
